JOPLIN, Mo. – CFI has reorganized and expanded into one company with five distinct services, doubling in size and supporting more than 5,000 families across North America.
Its portfolio of five well-defined service categories include three asset-based services – Truckload, Dedicated and Temperature-Controlled – as well as non-asset Mexico and Logistics services.
To form the dedicated service, Transport America rebranded and integrated into CFI. This portion will continue to grow in January when the former UPS Freight Dedicated division, currently branded TForce Freight Dedicated, also rebrands to CFI.
To form the Temp-Control service, earlier this year CFI expanded into refrigerated transportation through TFI International Inc.’s acquisition of MCT. To digitally support these services, CFI released its new cfidrive.com website.
“We have listened to our customers and reorganized our companies to provide a more complete array of services under a common brand, streamlined lines of communication and more convenient and responsive customer experience,” CFI president Greg Orr said in a news release.
“With a strong portfolio of asset-backed, non-asset services as well as superior coverage of North America, we believe that CFI today offers an elite transportation and logistics experience providing significant competitive advantage.”
Opportunities for professional drivers include traditional OTR, dedicated, regional, temperature controlled and come as both company drivers and independent contractors.
The principal services under the expanded portfolio include:
Truckload. CFI’s foundation for 70 years, this flagship offering services North America with professional drivers, modern equipment featuring the latest safety technologies, strategically placed terminal and maintenance shop networks, secured parking, 24/7 operations management and driver support.
Including irregular route drivers and equipment from the former Transport America, CFI Truckload’s operation runs 2,200 trucks and 6,500 53-foot dry-van trailers. The service is driven by the more than 2,500 skilled professional drivers, a diverse group that includes an industry-leading 14 percent military veterans and 14 percent female drivers.
Dedicated. Rebranding of the former Transport America to CFI providing high-value dedicated transportation solutions throughout North America. Currently deploying 1,500 drivers, 1,300 trucks and 2,800 trailers in January 2022, CFI Dedicated will grow to include assets from TForce Freight Dedicated.
Through integrated partnerships, CFI Dedicated provides a variety of custom transportation services including multi-stop truckload, closed-loop point-to-point direct service for manufacturing plants, warehouses, distribution centers, and store-door delivery. In addition to dry-van truckload, CFI Dedicated provides refrigerated, flatbed, specialized trailers, and lift-gate services to meet specific, purpose-designed customer supply chain needs.
Temp-Control. From TFI International’s acquisition of MCT, CFI integrated this experienced refrigerated and dry-van service provider to create CFI Temp-Control for temperature sensitive goods.
CFI Temp-Control facilities joined the CFI network with a fleet of 210 trucks and 600 Thermo-King refrigerated trailers, featuring state-of-the art telematics that provide shippers with reliable in-transit tracking and temperature monitoring for each load.
Mexico. CFI Mexico is a reliable cross-border service built on trusted partnerships with Mexican carriers for 36 years. It operates an owned LTL network within Mexico and provides in-country truckload transportation through a consortium of nearly 200 C-TPAT certified Mexico carrier partners. Additional services include transloading, truckload, intermodal, consolidation and deconsolidation.
Logistics. CFI Logistics is a third-party logistics provider with a complete menu of supply chain services. These solutions include full-truckload, less-than-truckload, port services, warehousing, expedited, air freight forwarding, Autogistics (specific services for Tier 1 automotive suppliers and manufacturing plants), as well as other trucking services including cross-border Canada and Panama service.
